In many cases, the beginning engineering student is thrown into upper-level engineering courses without an adequate introduction to the basic material. This, at best, causes undue stress on the student as they feel unprepared when faced with unfamiliar material, and at worst, results in students dropping out of the program or changing majors when they discover that their chosen field of engineering is not what they thought it was. The purpose of this text is to introduce the student to a general cross-section of the field of electrical and computer engineering. The text is aimed at incoming freshmen, and as such, assumes that the reader has a limited to nonexistent background in electrical engineering and knowledge of no more than pre-calculus in the field of mathematics. By exposing students to these fields at an introductory level, early in their studies, they will have both a better idea of what to expect in later classes and a good foundation of knowledge upon which to build.

This book is written for students and teachers engaged in electrical and computer engineering (ECE) design projects, primarily in the senior year. It guides students and faculty through the steps necessary for the successful execution of design projects. The objective of the text is to provide a treatment of the design process in ECE with a sound academic basis that is integrated with practical application. It has a strong guiding vision -- that a solid understanding of the Design Process, Design Tools, and the right mix of Professional Skills are critical for project and career success. This text is unique in providing a comprehensive design treatment for ECE.
Scientists and engineers must use methods of probability to predict the outcome of experiments, extrapolate results from a small case to a larger one, and design systems that will perform optimally when the exact characteristics of the inputs are unknown. While many engineering books dedicated to the advanced aspects of random processes and systems include background information on probability, an introductory text devoted specifically to probability and with engineering applications is long overdue. Probability for Electrical and Computer Engineers provides an introduction to probability and random variables. Written in a clear and concise style that makes the topic interesting and relevant for electrical and computer engineering students, the text also features applications and examples useful to anyone involved in other branches of engineering or physical sciences. Chapters focus on the probability model, random variables and transformations, inequalities and limit theorems, random processes, and basic combinatorics. These topics are reinforced with computer projects available on the CRC Press Web site. This unique book enhances the understanding of probability by introducing engineering applications and examples at the earliest opportunity, as well as throughout the text. Electrical and computer engineers seeking solutions to practical problems will find it a valuable resource in the design of communication systems, control systems, military or medical sensing or monitoring systems, and computer networks.
